While the MacBook Air is commonly referred to as one of the best mobile laptop devices out there best of its size, portability as well as the look and feel. The MacBook Air really gives you not only the look and feel but also the experience that is require for when you need to use a computer on the go. The only issue with it is, is it too portable?! If your need for portability is sitting on a train, in a hotel room or an office that isn’t your own then the MacBook Air would be perfect for you. However, what if you need something to take onto a construction site, or into a factory, ever a warzone or an oil rig. The MackBook Air is likely to being unusable with all the dirt and definitely stands a real risk of literally snapping under the pressure.
